The lens came with the hood and a pouch which is nice to have. The lens is certainly very heavy and is hard to hold it steadily for extended period of time. So I have to crank up the ISO a bit to use the faster shutter speed. I am pretty sure that the Image Stabilization also helped. I don't have the tripod ring yet so I have not used this on the tripod.
The only thing is that I wish the aperture can be wider so I can blur out the background more. I know, I know, wider aperture lenses are much much more expensive. This is in the spec and not a defect so I should not complain about it.
After more than six months of use, I truly like this lens. It is fast to focus and sharp. I was able to create spectacular shots for birds (in motion), dragonflies, and moon faces. The only gripe about it is that it does NOT come with the tripod ring collar which is also not available. I just can not figure why Cannon does this for the L lens. Having a ring collar is a no-brainer and it does not require rocket science to do this.
I've been using the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens for a couple of days to photograph backyard birds, wildlife etc. (which is basically why I bought it) and have it attached to a two year old Canon EOS XSi Rebel. Not a professional camera...but, that's the way I roll. :)
I'm hand holding the camera with AutoFocus set and the Image Stabilization turned on and set to (Normal Mode) -- the camera is also set to continuous shooting when the camera button is pressed -- because birds move around alot, even when standing still.
So far, the images are all Razor Sharp, when viewed at 100% in Photoshop, with a wonderful dreamy (blurred out) background that birds and wildlife should have. I'll upload a few images so you can see what I'm talking about.
The image colors are very vivid and bright...even when zipping the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens out to 300mm (which, I think, would be about 480mm for my particular camera). :)
For me, the lens is slightly heavy...but, not something I cannot get used to. When fully extended, with hood in place, it seems very long, and "out there", but I am getting used to it. The white color of the lens is a "plus" because, I know from experience, the summer sun can really heat up a black lens in a hurry, and potentially damage a very expensive piece of glass -- if ya know what I mean.
I find the the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens to be very fast...even at 300mm using continuous shooting setting. I don't think I could be more satisfied with a telephoto zoom lens. It meets and exceeds all my expetations, and is really a beautiful piece of technology. This is my 3rd Canon "L" lens. Ya don't have to have a really expensive camera to mount this lens to, and get excellent results. :) Highly Recommended! --Katharena Eiermann, 2011
